Eloïse Gratton Ad.E., Partner and National Co-leader, Privacy and Data Protection, Borden Ladner Gervais LLPChristopher Berzins, Senior Legal Counsel, Ontario Securities Commission Paul Schabas, Partner at Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLPIn 2014, the European Court of Justice issued its momentous Google Spain decision, which recognized what has been characterized as "the right to be forgotten." Since then, there has been considerable debate about whether the right to be forgotten might take foothold in Canada. In 2016, the Privacy Commissioner of Canada announced a public consultation process involving online reputation issues, including the right to be forgotten. On January 26, 2018, it issued a draft position paper that supported de-indexing of search engine results and take down of information at source in specific circumstances. The OPC has invited further comment on its draft position paper, after which it will finalize its position. In this follow-up to the 2017 Symposium session on the right to be forgotten, the panel will discuss the OPC’s draft position paper and other developments such as the Supreme Court of Canada's Equustek decision from June 2017, and will consider whether we are moving towards a recognition of a right to be forgotten in the Canadian context and, if so, what the implications will be going forward.What you’ll take away: The legal issues associated with the right to be forgotten;The contentious issues that it raises (censorship, impact on freedom of expression); andThe challenges it may raise moving forward.
